    Just curious when we think we should see a 3.0 rom from the devs?

    What is the time line in order to create one? I know the SDK was just released but is that what devs need in order to make one? What are we looking for to know that one will be coming shortly?

    Ya and to add to that will there be a ginger bread rom for a Droid 1? I remember them saying that gingerbread would not be available to phones below a 1gh processor. At least I think they said that. If that is the case will the awesome devs be able to port a rom to an original droid?

    The souce code has to be released before a ROM can be built. The sdk is for developing apps to work on the new OS. As soon as the source drops you'll see a new batch of ROMs shortly after.

    Also I believe the D1 will see at least some aspect of gingerbread. Rooted or not, but that's just a guess. Rooted for sure though.

    I personally do not think they will be releasing Gingerbread to the D1. As far as Gingerbread ROMS for the D1? Without a doubt : ) You can count on it.

    GB Rom for D1 will hold me over until I buy whatever new device I get, and it'll have 3.0 on it cuz I can't justify anything else to myself :)

    That is if I don't buy a new device before a ROM is available

    Nobody wants to run Donut now that Froyo is outm so I doubt any of us would be on Froyo once GB comes.

    the specs were just a suggestion. 1ghz processor, 512mb RAM were only suggestions and not requirements for gingerbread.

    either way, i have confidence in the dev team that we will have a gingerbread ROM for the rooted D1's within a couple weeks of release of the source code.

    You have to wait for google to make a source to see source roms (cyanogenmod, sapphire, shadowrom, etc.), but you have to wait for a gingerbread leak for OTA-based roms(bugless beast, etc.)

    They're basically tearing apart framework-res and making it faster, better looking, and more smooth, which is a good thing. Also, they're changing most of the stuff that's yellow in android stock(highlighting, volume, etc.) And turning it to green(the color of andy the android:)

    It will be out when either a leaked gingerbread build hits the 'net and someone starts hacking on it or when the code hits the AOSP servers. Not before.

    well 2.3.x is already out for the Droid 2, so i doubt gingerbread is 2.3.

    my guess is that it will be 3.0 since is seems to be a fairly major update. but what do i know :)

    Droid X and Droid 2 do not have FRGXX/FRFXX names for their releases, instead moto did build releases, so the newest droid 2 release is 2.2 2.3.20, not 2.3 :)

    There is a REASON they won't release GB for D1. It's the same reason you shouldn't run Windows 7 on a 800 mhz computer with 512 MB of ram.

    Just because there probably won't be a "release" doesn't mean someone won't eventually port it to the d1.
